WHO’s call for global action to curb E-cigarette epidemic

The World Health Organisation has issued a call against the alarming rise in e-cigarette use, particularly in young children and teenagers. Urgent action is being called to control e-cigarettes, which are not only proving ineffective as acting as an alternative to smoking but also harming health. E-cigarettes were originally introduced as a tool to help smokers quit but have become largely targeted towards young children. 88 countries still have no minimum age for purchasing e-cigarettes, and 74 countries lack any regulations for the product.
